One Vital Information Fani-Kayode Was Trying To Pass As EFCC Withdraws Case Against Yahaya Bello

Politics should be a business that is carried out in love and in unity among all its participators, other than creating unnecessary issues for the leaders of the country by making false allegations that is demanding for the query or removal of a serving leader from his position. On Friday, after the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) duly investigated and found no guilt in the circumstances surrounding the allegation imposed on Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State, the case has been withdrawn. The Governor had been accused of allegedly diverting N20 billion bailout funds.

In reacting to the incident after the emancipation of the Governor, a Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, slammed all those that pronounced the Governor guilty of the crime.

Mr Fani-Kayode posted on his verified Twitter handle that: "Now the EFCC have withdrawn their case against Yahaya Bello and Kogi State Government, where are all those that condemned him and pronounced him guilty of a crime he never committed? Shame on you."

Justice Chukwujekwu Aneke granted the order of withdrawal on Friday, sequel to the motion filed by the EFCC Counsel, Kemi Pinheiro (SAN).

In my opinion, Mr Femi Fani-Kayode in his statement, was trying to pass a very vital information that Nigerians needs to jot down.

In essence of what Fani-Kayode was saying, we should desist from pointing red-fingers at someone who is innocent of a crime. This is one of the biggest challenges we are facing in the Nigerian political struggle. Opposition has been misinterpreted and therefore, used as a privilege to utter false proclamations against an acting leader. Mr Fani-Kayode's proclamation: "where are all those that condemned him and pronounced him guilty of a crime he never committed," is a proof that those who accused Yahaya Bello of the crime knew that he was guiltless and that was why they refused to show up to oppose the freedom of the governor.
